A leading oil product manufacturer chose to work with Comtrol on a variety of applications involving IO-Link. For Application 1, the company wanted to create greater visibility with their storage tank pressure and flow rates. Application 2 needed to track presence detection and flow rates to supervise oil feed into a bottling machine. Application 3 focused on label detection on conveyor lines.
The user desired to monitor their pressure and flow rates of oil being supplied to their holding tanks. They installed a Comtrol IO-Link Master DR-8-EIP inside a cabinet that could communicate with the IO-Link sensors. If the rates were too high, the operators would know remotely through their EtherNet/IP PLC. The Comtrol IO-Link Master also gave them greater sensor diagnostic and status information through its extensive web-interface.
